The theme of this year’s event is “Speak-up.”
“Today, more than ever, we want to challenge the many inconsistencies, inequalities, and injustices that still claim many victims,” said Fabienne Colas, the Festival president, and founder, in a release. “The fact remains that not everyone has access to opportunities. We cannot pretend everything is okay. Everyone has a part to play if we want things to change.”
